several hours. Two head of cattle
were killed but no persous injured.

artists is an evidence of this fact.

Troubles of Our Own.
The Daily Chieftain Is after bus
iness all right but seriously object
to life long residents of Vinita taking
our placeof business for livery stables
blacksmith shops grocery stores and
the doctor's office. Notlqng since one
of our leading attorneys called up the
oflice and requested that the white
pony be sent up immediately. Now
the only "pony" that interests the
boy who is paid for answering the
telephone is that product of Papsthei-
scr and Shlitzenbush; and be so in
formed the gentleman who at once
went Into a towering rage broke up
the telephone and said plea-ant things
about wrong numbers telephon
Next came a lady who wanted to
know what good butter was worth
and when told by the telephone boy
that he did not know she expressed
her opinion of a grocery cierk who did
not have brains enough to keep up
with the market price of butter in
very forcible and eloqueut terms.
On top of this our telephone boy
has been asked a thousand hard queS'
tions such as: "How is the .iorth
bound train?" "Have you any fresh
eggs?" "Can you send me up a ton of
coal at once?" "Please have the doc
tor call at our house immediately" etc
Today however was reserved for
the crushing blow. First a gentle
man called for his horse-but the boy
refused to accommodate him. Then
a man unknown wanted to know if
he could come in and repair the beam
of his sod plow. It was more than
poor weak boy could stgnd; he tried to
explain to the gentleman that he was
talking to a representative of
The Daily Chieftain but it was
of no use. Finally the man-
of-the-plow got mad and in an I'll
break-your-neck voice informed the
boy that he knew wtiat he wanted
and where to get it saying also that
The Chieftain force were all black
The poor boy went out in the work
room and asked the printers what it
all meant explaining the conversa
tion as it occurred. Now the entire
printaorial force is on the war path
and woe to the man-of-the-plow if he
falls into their hands.
